MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. Officers of the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria delivered 400 kilograms of bread baked at the Russian field bakery to a number of settlements in the Syrian province of Homs, the Russian center said in its regular daily bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Tuesday.
The center also said it continues to form humanitarian convoys for settlements in the provinces of Hama and Latakia.
Meanwhile, according to the Russian reconciliation center, militants from Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group (outlawed in Russia) continue combat operations in a bid to break down the ceasefire regime.
"The settlement of Handrat in the province of Aleppo trice came under mortar fire opened from the village of Muhein Handrat. Aleppo’s districts Sheikh Maksoud, Meydan and Al-Nayrab airport twice came under shelling from multiple missile launcher systems in the past day," the bulletin says. "There are casualties among local servicemen and civilians."
Terrorists conducted mortar fire at government troops’ positions near the settlement of Ikko in the north of the Latakia province, the bulletin says.
A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.
An hour before the ceasefire came into force, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution in support cessation of hostilities in Syria. The document was initiated by Russia and the United States and won support from all the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council.
